Is it just me or is the audio for Zorro's Black Whip ch 12 bad.
http://www.archive.org/details/zorros_black_whip_chapter12

I've tried both the mp4 and ogg files and they both sound like they were recorded inside a metal shipping container.

I just want to know whether or not it's something on my end which I can try and do something about.

Great series by the way. It's also the only western serial I know of with a female protagonist.

I just checked the audio and, Wow that is bad, thanks for the heads up, and sorry about that. I'll try to fix it when I get home this eveing.

If you are looking for serials with a female heroes off the top of my head I can think of three other serials Queen of the Jungle, Jungle girl Nyoka, Perils of Darkest Jungle.

Any luck on getting a better copy of this yet?

I have all of these sitting on my hard drive waiting to be burnt but I'm holding off until we see if we can get better audio on 12.

I'm not sure, probably not. I don't think those are in the Public Domain. But if somebody can do a check, and they clear then yes I can.

I hope they are. A friend at church(about my age)went to those Saturday Matinees and also got up to get popcorn during the serials. She never like them because the female was so "wishy washy", she said. I showed her Zorro's black Whip and she was hooked.

You know there is something about Zorro's Black Whip, that I really liked. It was honestly refreshing to see a serial where a woman could really take care of herself.

That's what I am saying. The woman in serials is generally handed the role of "Damsel in Distress", but Republic saw the potential of casting the woman in a different role in a few serials like Zorro's black whip and a few others that you made mention. They may of been a B- Movies company compared to MGM, Paramount, Universal etc, but nobody could touch them on serials. BTW the last serial done ever was by Republic Studios in 1956.

Thanks Scott, it's much appreciated.

I've heard of but haven't seen Queen of the jungle and Jungle Girl Nyoka. There're on my list to get when I have money to spare.

I had not herd of Perils of Darkest Jungle, I will have to look into it. I'm a big fan of jungle films if you couldn't guess.

Another serial I liked was Panther Girl of the Congo. As for TV shows Sheena Queen of the Jungle was also fun.

Wasn't "Panther Girl of the Congo" re-cut into a feature called "The Claw Monsters", said monsters being giant crawdads? I've got that one.

Well I checked the original MEPG2 source and the audio actually sounds that bad on the original. Yikes, sometimes I wish it was my screw up, anyway I'm going to check with my serial trading buddies to see if he has better copy. Sorry again.

No problem you can only work with what you've got and somethings better than nothing.

Thanks for taking the time and thanks for the uploads.
